Controlled pollinations and observations of pollen tube growth, pollen fertility and cytological data were studied in 11 species ofMelastomataceae growing in “cerrado” in SE Brazil. Seven species produced apomictic fruits with viable seeds. Four species were not apomictic, with two self-incompatible (gametophytic SI) and two self-compatible, one showing spontaneous self-pollination. The apomictic species had lower pollen fertility than sexual ones — although in some cases differences were not… CONTINUE READING
